I am trying to do a cake in the shape of a tire. They do not want fondant. Is there any way to make it in buttercream so that you will still be able to see the lines in the tire. I need it to look as realistic as possible. TIA
Could you use a diamond impression mat on the sides to make it look like tread? Or maybe a zigzag impression mat if they make those?
Does an impression mat work well on buttercream? I've never used them before. That is a good idea.
Yes, you can use it on buttercream. Just let your buttercream chill and crust first. Also, be sure to dust the impression mat with some corn starch or powdered sugar so it doesn't stick to the buttercream. I used it on the white cake w/gold ribbon and red flowers in my photos.
I sugest cover the cake and smooth it and using a ruler or a fondant tool like a vaining tool and make the lines
I hope this help
Thanks for your help. I wonder would it be better to use black icing or use white and airbrush it black?
